As trees bloom and flowers blossom, you can help make the hospital a little brighter for sick kids.

Did you know that the number of children diagnosed with a chronic illness is on the rise?

It has quadrupled over the past four decades, which means that more children are spending time in the hospital.

There are many things that can make pediatric patients feel scared and isolated, such as getting poked with sharp needles, being connected to machines that make strange noises, and spending days alone in the hospital. But together we can make a difference.

Through our Hospital Happenings, you can help bring an array of entertainers into the hospital, including clowns, musicians, caricature artists, and magicians. Their tricks, songs, and positive energy lift the spirits of pediatric patients and allow children to escape from the hardships of their hospital stay while providing a sense of normalcy and relief.

Like you, Looney Louie the Clown is passionate about improving the emotional well-being of hospitalized children and their family members. Like you, Freckle Speckle is devoted to making a deeper, more meaningful impact on a sick kid's life. With childhood chronic diseases on the rise, we need your help to make hospital stays less traumatic and a better place for sick children to get better.

Your compassion and generosity makes it possible to provide programs that lead to faster recovery times and reduced feelings of anxiety, depression, and loneliness.

P.S. Entertainers may make magic for a living, but YOU create the real magic by helping transform sickness into laughter. Please consider making your most generous gift to enCourage Kids by making a tax-deductible donation today.
